Class of 2021

Dear Class of 2021 Parent, 

On behalf of the New Trier Parents' Association (NTPA) we look forward to welcoming you to the Class of 2021 and as the parent of a New Trier Student you automatically become a member of the NTPA--no extra forms to complete.

Every Parents' Association survives through the volunteering generosity of its parents and we are the same. We have a wealth of opportunities to get involved, to suit all interests and time availabilities from a few hours chaperoning a school dance to the Officer roles of Class Co-Chairs and Vice Co-Chairs.

Volunteering with the NTPA offers a fabulous opportunity to learn more about the workings of our school, to meet parents from across the Township and to really be a part of your student's school life at a time when these chances diminish significantly!!

Please volunteer early and often!

We are creating the new Class of 2021 Board in April, 2017. Please contact either of us or take a look at the NTPA website for more information. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Claire Hearn and Tika Walsh

New Trier Parents' Association Co-Presidents-Elect (2017-18)



Please click here to submit online Class of 2021 Volunteer Form. We encourage you to volunteer!  You can spend as little or as much time as possible on a variety of committees.

  • Did You Know?

    When registering for classes each year, students, parents, and advisers consider the complete experience each student hopes to have at New Trier. This video explains that planning process. For additional context, check out the profiles New Trier compiles of its graduating classes.  Filled with interesting and useful information, these profiles present details on classes (and levels) taken by the graduates, colleges attended, and much more. See the Class of 2016 Profile  for in-depth information about New Trier's most recent graduating class.
